What is your field of study? Why did you choose it?
My Ph.D. is in Instruction and Curriculum with a focus on Research in Teaching and Teacher Education. Within that broad field, my main areas of interest and study are cultural competence and teaching for social justice. I have taught a wide range of courses and consider myself a teacher education generalist. I chose this field because I am passionate about pedagogy and its effect on learners. I wanted to understand more in depth how people learn in ways that are active, meaningful, relevant, and memorable.

"Always believe in yourself, and do things that make you happy and sane."
That, in a nutshell, is Joslynn Lee. And it's that spirit -- and the story of how far Lee has been able to go with that attitude -- that is showcased in the cover story in the Summer issue of Winds of Change, the journal of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society.

Fort Lewis College Professor of Chemistry Dr. Ron Estler’s impact at Fort Lewis and, more importantly, on his students is profound. His close relationships with his graduates provide evidence of his impact on them. He continues to stay in contact with many of them long after they’ve left FLC. His ability to change the lives of those he teaches was recognized with one of the highest honors an educator can receive: the 2009 CASE Colorado Professor of the Year award.
